EU commissioner warns roots of West cannot be invented

.- The Italian senator and former EU commissioner Rocco Buttiglione said last week that the roots of the West cannot be invented and that Western culture has its roots in Christianity.
During the closing of the 1st International Congress on Philosophy in Granada, Spain, Buttiglione said each culture has to confront the problem of its own roots and the fundamental demands of the human heart. “We need roots, and our roots are the ones we have, they cannot be invented,” he said.
In this sense, the Italian senator said Christian roots “are very concrete,” because they include not only the university but also “the faithful love of parents, of a people, of an historic journey, of a way of looking at man and woman, of literature.” “All of this forms our roots and leads to self-knowledge,” he stated.
